The newly-launched Cuba Cruise breaks new ground with its circumnavigation of Cuba, making the Island’s fascinating but otherwise hard to reach ports accessible and affordable for all. Each cruise includes the opportunity to visit world famous beaches, six UNESCO world heritage sites and four National Parks & Preserves, as well as in-depth exploration of Cuba’s dynamic culture. The experience offers the best qualities of cruising and all-inclusive getaways combined with a Cuba that few people see.
Prices start at $586 double occupancy for a seven-night cruise. The upcoming season will run from December 16, 2013 to March 31, 2014 with a total of 15 departures.
“It is exciting to offer something truly unique to the travel market, and Cuba Cruise is certainly the only offering of its kind,” said Cuba Cruise President Dugald Wells. “We provide the best of both worlds to our guests – a top-notch all inclusive cruise experience and the type of in-the-know exploration of Cuba’s remarkable sights, sounds, flavours and history that is usually reserved for locals only.”
Cuba Cruise has received overwhelming support from the people of Cuba and the Cuban Tourist Board. “Passengers of Cuba Cruise will be greeted as special guests to our home, and experience the warmth and generosity that defines the authentic Cuba,” says Ruben Jiminez, Director of the Cuba Tourist Board of Canada.
